**Enumclaw, WA – [6/19/24]** – West Coast Cavaliers proudly announces a historic milestone in the world of dog conformation shows. Weston, a distinguished chocolate Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, has become the first of his color to be shown in conformation and to receive the prestigious International Champion title at the recent IABCA Dog Show. This groundbreaking achievement marks a significant step forward for non-standard colored Cavaliers and their recognition in the competitive dog show arena. 

Weston, an exceptional representative of the breed, impressed judges and spectators alike with his admirable conformation, elegance, and temperament. His achievement not only highlights his individual excellence but also underscores the growing acceptance and celebration of color diversity within the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel community.

 “We are beyond thrilled to see Weston achieve this historic title,” said Ana, owner and breeder at West Coast Cavaliers. “His success is a testament to our commitment to promoting health and quality in Cavaliers, regardless of color.”

The AKC currently does not permit chocolate Cavaliers to compete in conformation shows, although they can participate in other competitive areas such as agility and obedience. Weston’s achievement at the IABCA Dog Show demonstrates the importance of having platforms where all Cavaliers, including those with non-standard colors, can be showcased and celebrated for their excellence.

 Weston’s journey to this momentous accomplishment has been filled with dedication, rigorous training, and the unwavering support of the West Coast Cavaliers team. As the first chocolate Cavalier to reach such heights, Weston is not only a champion but a trailblazer for future generations of Cavaliers.

 West Coast Cavaliers invites the community to join in celebrating this remarkable achievement. For more information about Weston, his journey, and the mission of West Coast Cavaliers, please visit WestCoastCavaliers.com.
